Are you unsure about whether or not to apply for an internship? Are you unsure as to what type of internship to look for? A recent graduate from the Language and Literature program has given some advice when it comes to picking an internship and planning for post-graduation work.

“Because my greatest passions are writing and helping others, I decided to pursue internships that would allow me to develop my skills in these areas while padding out my experience at the same time. Moving from arts reporting with ACU’s student newspaper, I found success writing album reviews and feature articles for The Appetizer Radio Show, a venture started by an Abilene graduate. At the same time, I spent a portion of my summer providing administrative assistance for the International Rescue Committee, which works to resettle refugees and asylees from around the world.

These two internships pushed me to strengthen my abilities and remember to keep other people’s interests above my own. While it’s important to bolster your résumé proactively to stand out from other applicants when the time comes, internships that reflect your deepest interests are also an excellent way to reflect a rounded personality on paper; after my time with The Appetizer and IRC, my prospective employer was impressed that I had something to show for my talents and passions beyond academia!” – Richard Lyne, 2015
